There's a new Blogger on the block...

My eldest is football mad, if he's not watching it on TV or having a kick about with his mates he's practising his skills with a ball on the trampoline or performing keep uppy's in the kitchen with his little brother's Peppa pig ball. He also plays for a local under 11's side as well as following his favourite football team, often going to watch with his Dad and little brother, and was recently lucky enough to be a mascot.

His love of sport doesn't just end with football though, like his Dad he can watch any sport and has an interest in all of it - from beach volleyball to archery, you name it, they watch it.

Sam also likes to write, from an early age he has formed teams and leagues with his microstar football collection, leaving scraps of paper all over the place with teams and scores scrawled all over them. When he finds something he's passionate about he loves to write about it, and three years ago wrote an amazing project about the FA Cup run of Coventry City, in which he went to every game and wrote brilliant match reports for each.

Recently he was one of four pupils from his school chosen to attend a writers workshop as his teacher spotted potential in his writing, which came as a bit of a shock to Sam as Maths has always been his 'thing'. I think this has made him realise his ability and he has now decided to start a blog where he plans to write about any sporting event that interests him.

I'm very proud of him and I hope he continues to write as I love to see his enthusiasm when he talks about something that has really captured his interest, and it will be great to look back on in the future, as well as potentially earning him some much needed brownie points with his teacher!

If you want to read about sporting events from the perspective of an 11 year old then have a quick look at Sammy On Sport...there's not much on there just yet, but hopefully there will be more soon.
